Title: Artificial neural networks: a review of training tools
Authors: Dario Baptista , Morgado Dias
Abstract: Artificial Neural Networks became a common solution for a wide variety of problems in many fields. The most frequent solution for its implementation consists of building and training the Artificial Neural Network within a computer. For implementing a network in an efficient way, the user can access a large choice of software solutions either commercial or prototypes. Choosing the most convenient solution for the application according to the network architecture, training algorithm, operating system and price can be a complex task. This paper helps the Artificial Neural Network user by providing a large list of solution available and explaining their characteristics and terms of use. The paper is confined to reporting the software products that have been developed for Artificial Neural Networks. The features considered important for this kind of software to have in order to accommodate its users effectively are specified. The development of software that implements Artificial Neural is a rapidly growing field driven by strong research interests as well as urgent practical, economical and social needs.
